Come Prepared!

Use the checklist below so that you come prepared for creek conditions. Please be prepared to get a little muddy. Many of the clean-up sites may have poison oak.

 

  • Your own drinking water
  • A bucket or re-usable shopping bag to collect light trash (per person)
  • Comfortable, washable clothes
  • Long pants and long sleeves
  • Hat and Sunscreen
  • Gloves (work or gardening type)
  • Shoes that can get wet and muddy
  • Waterproof boots (optional)
  • Grabbing tool or rake (optional)

 

Important:

ALL CHILDREN MUST BE WITH A RESPONSIBLE ADULT as the debris, water, or slippery stream banks may be hazardous.

If you bring a child or group of children, your most important job is to supervise and keep them safe. Collecting trash is secondary for adults in charge of children.

Thank you for making it possible for them to have this experience!

 

Antelope

Volunteer Instructions

The Antelope clean-up is mostly naturalized vegetated drainage canals instead of natural creeks. You are not likely to encounter poison oak.  Ideal for young children and those with limited mobility.

Please review the checklist to the left to come prepared.

We also ask that you please download, fill out, print and bring a Volunteer Waiver to give to your site leader. And if you are registering for a group or organization please download our Group Waiver to fill out and hand to your site leader.

Please report at 9:00am sharp on Saturday, April 29th to the northwest side of the parking lot between OSH and the ARCO at Walerga and Elverta Road.  SEE MAP Volunteers may be assigned to a creek location nearby that they will then drive to.

Your team leader will provide you with instructions, garbage bags and help get you started.
